2018 Eppy Award Winners

Posted

This year’s EPPY Awards received more than 300 entries. Winners were selected from an international list of nominations to honor the best digital media websites across 30 diverse categories, in addition to categories for excellence in college and university journalism. Each category was separated into websites with more than 1 million monthly unique visitors, and those that receive less than 1 million. Winners must receive a score in the top one-third of the average score across all categories within their division. As a result, there may be no winner in categories not reaching this threshold.

Once again, thank you to our judges this year. Our panel of judges is made up of media leaders with backgrounds in website design, marketing/advertising, editorial, technology, education, and management.
